Matthew was not only extremely knowledgeable and did a wondrous job of setting realistic expectations throughout my family law case. But instrumental in getting an erroneous yet serious restraining order thrown out in a county known to simply go with whatever was "recommended". His uncanny ability to stay multiple steps ahead of the prosecuting party was as if he could tell the future. This type of counsel is only possible by way of real life experience. I myself have worked in legal services for over a decade with my own profession licenses and I rarely if ever come across an individual with his level of caring, attention to detail, and expertise. His services easily out way any costs incurred along the way to a REAL WIN! If the person reading this review or anyone in need of counsil that you may know needs someone that will go to bat for them, Matthew and his team are absolutely the way to go period.

Me and my fiancé had to get an attorney 2 days before his domestic violence trial. We asked for a continuance to obtain an attorney BUT it was denied. So as I was searching around for attorneys and I was referred to Mathew Martinez. Honestly I was shocked he was willing to work with us regarding payments. With Covid and changes within the world and inflation in groceries and gas prices we are so thankful that he was affordable. He was very professional and reached out to us in a timely manner. I ended up googling him and noticed he was a prosecutor for over 12 years prior to being independent. Overall he was a very honest man and that’s exactly what we we’re looking for. He fought for us in court and we got good results in the end. I would definitely recommend Mr. Martinez!

My parents hired Matt for me in a civil restraining order case. We had called around looking for an honest attorney and Matt was the first one we felt really comfortable with. He was upfront and I liked his attitude on things. I really appreciated his honesty and I got the feeling he really cared . He let me know that he was representing me and had my back. We won our case and I know it’s because Matt knows the law and as a former DA he know the ropes and how to defend you. He reads and takes note of what is important in the evidence and knows how to question and He is quick with his Witt. Thank you Matt for everything. I highly recommend him should you need a good defender who has your back.

I found Matt via a google search for a civil harassment matter. When we met him I knew this was the right Attorney for our situation. We were right! He was upfront, honest, and attentive. He responded to our concerns and questions in a timely manner . Once you hire him is committed to your defense. He knows what he is doing.

I contacted Matt about my son’s legal situation. Matt explained his experience as a previous DA and his thoughts on my son’s case. He immediately met with my son and took his case. From there with COVID in the air processes were interrupted but Matt still remained in constant communication with details. We weren’t ever left unsure. Between zoom calls in court to phone calls and email updates. Finally physical court dates came after offers from the other side. Which we did not accept because we understood our innocence. Trial began with Matt and God on our side. Matt always played hardball and was straight forward with us. He was always willing to pivot with his direction if need be. Ultimately the outcome was innocent. I swear I just wanted to tell him “Matt, I love you!” My son was free to leave the judge told us! I just hugged him tightly for all of his work! Thank you to Matthew Martinez for your amazing representation of the legal system because we were facing an almost impossible situation.

I had a lot of things stacked against when Mr. Martinez was hired, a really high bail, 4 felony charges and a restraining order. Although I didn’t do the things I was charged with all the evidence made it look like I did, making this an extremely difficult case. There were times where I was so overwhelmed and scared I was going to take the horrible deal that the DA was offering but Mr. Martinez told me I should fight a little more. He did everything he said he would and I ended up getting the outcome I asked for. I really appreciate all of his hard work and highly recommend him.

What Our Client's Say

No criminal history, felony rape charge facing 6 years in CDC. Not guilty verdict after a jury trial. Mr. Martinez defended me in a jury trial. He picked the witness’s statement apart. He went after their inconsistencies and showed the jury that I was not guilty of a terrible crime. I was facing years of prison and deportation, but Mr. Martinez convinced the jury that I was not guilty. I got to go home with my wife and children and now I am starting my own business.
J. Reyes
Former Client
"Prior strike, charged with felony domestic violence facing 8 years in CDC (prison), result: case dismissed. Mr. Martinez fought my case and got the DA to dismiss it after the preliminary hearing. They didn’t even file the information. I have a prior strike from years ago. I was looking at 8 years in prison. Mr. Martinez fought hard for me and he will fight hard for you."
